Ok, so I have forgotten, but when do you think it's alright to let puppies have their first raw bone? My two monsters need some serious chewing action and we have various types of good chewing bones in the freezer for the adults. I know about limiting marrow initially, but do you think it's OK for 15 week old pups?
I dont seen any prob as long as you are supervising, i have giving Jazz raw hide and raw bones and she loves the i started giving er them around 13 weeks becaus the chewing was a nightmare, just make sure there are no tiny bits that can come off and there teethare not really that strong enough to bite off large chunks they will prob like there first one for a while let us no how u get on x
we gave Milly her first briskett bone at 16 weeks... we had the butcher cut them into smaller sizes than normal and I trimmed off all the fat and let Milly chew chew chew for about 20 minutes.... then I stuck it back in the freezer for the next week. Now she can chew 1/3rd of a briskett bone and it's gone in about 40 minutes...... we give one to her when we mow the grass.... it stops her from trying to "play" with the lawn mower..
My pups get bones as soon as their mothers start dropping them into the whelping box . . . often about five weeks. They just suck on them, but the pleasure is obvious. It's very funny watching a little pup 'guard' its bone from its siblings.
